Hyrai, Hyria

Hyrai is a toponym mentioned in Homer's catalogue of the ships, where the leading position in the list is given to the contingents from Boeotia, where Hyria and stony Aulis, where the fleet assembled, lead the list.[1] The site was assigned to the territory of Tanagra by Strabo,[2] who is not more precise about its location, which was apparently no longer inhabited in his time.
